German term or phrase: metalldetektiert verpackt
I am not sure how to say that in English. It is about packing foodstuffs and the German original reads:

Alle fertigen Produkte werden metalldetektiert verpackt (Fe - 3mm and Non-Fe - 5mm).
Is that correct?
All finished products are packed by a procedure which includes metal detection (Fe - 3mm and Non-Fe - 5mm)
Monito
packed in a process that includes metal detection
Explanation:
Yes, I agree with your translation, would only offer the following slight rephrase:
"All finished products are packed in a process that includes metal detection (Fe 3mm and non-Fe 5mm)."

(not "BY a procedure" because the procedure is the means, not the actor)

agree  klausie-hamburg: yes to everything, but I find it strange that there should be metal bits of up to 5mm (?!) in foodstuffs after packing...?
